3 : Fractions, Decimals and Percents Overview Introduction Students will focus on understanding that fractions, decimals and percents are just three ways to refer to the same thing. Students will learn algorithms enabling them to perform calculations with all three forms. It is very important that students develop number sense by estimating first and then calculating; a sense of whether or not an answer is correct will be critical to problem solving. The big ideas in this unit are: Fractions, decimals, and percents are alternate forms of the same thing. Understanding the relationships between the three is critical. Percents mean per hundred. One percent is one-hundredth and so on. When working with decimals it is imperative that the student understand place value. Comparing, ordering, and operating will all rely on this knowledge. Estimating a reasonable answer prior to calculating is very important for developing number sense. The algorithms for multiplication and division of whole numbers and decimals are the same. The placement of the decimal can be determined through the use of good estimation skills. Context Patterns will be useful once again when used to convert between fractions and decimals. Several of the tools and ideas used to compare and order fractions will be benchmarks, number lines, place value, equivalent fractions and manipulatives such as fraction pieces and fraction strips. The use of manipulatives, technology, and pencil & paper will be encouraged while performing operations with fractions, decimals and percents. Operations with decimals will be subject to the order of operations but exponents will not be introduced. During this unit students will examine the connections between fractions, decimals and percents and learn to recognize and express them in all three forms. Percent problems will be limited to values no greater than 100%. Why are these concepts important? Developing a good understanding of fractions, decimals and percents will permit students to: Deal with these ideas when they occur in everyday life; as they often do. Prepare students to be informed consumers and contributing workers in the technological era that is the Information Age. Better help students to answer for themselves the perennial question Why do I need to learn this? Build a greater facility for working with numbers and enhance knowledge of basic facts. Prepare students for future math learning that focuses on rational numbers, proportions, and algebra. A man is like a fraction whose numerator is what he is and whose denominator is what he thinks of himself. The larger the denominator, the smaller the fraction. Leo Tolstoy ( ) Grade 7 Math Curriculum Guide 97

4 Specific Outcome It is expected that students will: 7N4. Demonstrate an understanding of the relationship between positive terminating decimals and positive fractions and between positive repeating decimals and positive fractions. [C, CN, R, T] Elaborations: Suggested Learning and Teaching Strategies Decimal numbers are simply another way of writing fractions. Decimals and proper fractions can both be represented using the part of a whole model. All fractions can be expressed as terminating = or repeating decimals 1 = 0.3 and vice 3 versa. Some students will already know the decimal equivalents of some simple fractions (e.g., 2 1 = 0.5, 4 1 = 0.25, 1 = 0.2) as well as any fraction with a denominator of 10, 5 100, or Students should be introduced to the terminology terminating, repeating, and period as well as to the bar notation used to indicate repeating periods. The patterns produced by fractions with a variety of denominators should be explored since many have particularly interesting periods. Students should use calculators when appropriate to find the decimal form for some fractions and predict the decimal for other fractions. Consider the difference in finding the decimal equivalents for sevenths and eighths. On a calculator we find = 2 = = Using a pattern we find 1 = = therefore 3? 8 = (0.375) Students should also be aware of the effect of calculator rounding (i.e., automatic rounding caused by the limit on the number of digits which the calculator can display).

6 Specific Outcome Elaborations: Suggested Learning and Teaching Strategies It is expected that students will: 7N4. Demonstrate an understanding of the relationship between positive terminating decimals and positive fractions and between positive repeating decimals and positive fractions. [C, CN, R, T] (Cont d) Achievement Indicators 7N4.1 (It is intended that repeating decimals be limited to decimals with 1 or 2 repeating digits.) Predict the decimal representation of a given fraction, using patterns; e.g., =, =, 3 11 =? Give students a set of fractions such as 1 2 3,,. Ask them to find a pattern using a calculator and then use the pattern to predict the decimal for other fractions such as ,, Ask students to compare the decimals for the following pairs and have them discuss the similarities and differences they observe. a) b) 1 and 12 3 and c) Since the decimal for 3 is , ask students to predict 16 the fraction that would produce a decimal of Some of the text exercises on p go beyond the 2 repeating digits of this achievement indicator. This can be explored in class activities, but should not be evaluated formally. 7N4.2 Match a given set of fractions to their decimal representations. See Lesson 3.1 p. 89 #10.

Each student would receive a card with either a decimal or a fraction. Students must circulate around the room to find the card which is equivalent to their own. Conclude the activity with the class by asking the students to explain why their cards belong together.

8 Specific Outcome It is expected that students will: 7N4. Demonstrate an understanding of the relationship between positive terminating decimals and positive fractions and between positive repeating decimals and positive fractions. [C, CN, R, T] (Cont d) Achievement Indicators 7N4.3 Sort a given set of fractions as repeating or terminating decimals. 7N4.4 Express a given fraction as a terminating or repeating decimal. Elaborations: Suggested Learning and Teaching Strategies See ProGuide p. 6. The following question illustrates the strategy using equivalent fractions with denominators of 10, 100 or This is a possible Explore activity. Use a calculator, if necessary, to complete the following table. Equivalent fraction with a Decimal Repeating Terminating Fraction denominator, equivalent Decimal Decimal if possible, of 10,100 or These are some guiding questions that can lead class discussion. a) Which fractions are equivalent to a repeating decimal? Can these fractions be written with a denominator of 10, 100 or 1000? b) Which fractions are equivalent to a terminating decimal? Can these fractions be written with a denominator of 10, 100 or 1000? c) How can you tell if a fraction is equivalent to a terminating or repeating decimal? When expressing a given fraction as a terminating or repeating decimal, use a calculator if needed. If the denominator is greater than 10 and not a multiple of 10, a calculator will be needed. Grade 7 Mathematics Curriculum Outcomes 102

9 Suggested Assessment Strategies Resources/Notes Informal Observation A graphic organizer such as a T-Chart may be useful here. Give the students a variety of fractions to classify as either terminating or repeating decimals. This may be done independently, as groups in a mix-up match-up game or as a whole class activity on the board. Ask students to justify the placement of the fractions. Using a T-Chart: Categorize given fractions as terminating or repeating. Math Makes Sense 7 Lesson 3.1 (continued) Journal 1 1. Does the fraction 27 produce a repeating pattern? How could you show or explain this without the use of a calculator? 2. Chris had a calculator which displayed Chris concluded that it was not a repeating decimal. Explain why Chris drew this conclusion and whether or not it is a correct conclusion. Grade 7 Mathematics Curriculum Outcomes 103

10 Specific Outcome It is expected that students will: 7N4. Demonstrate an understanding of the relationship between positive terminating decimals and positive fractions and between positive repeating decimals and positive fractions. [C, CN, R, T] (Cont d) Elaborations: Suggested Learning and Teaching Strategies Students are expected to be able to: Write fractions in simplest form. Find equivalent fractions. However, throughout this unit these concepts must be reinforced for all relevant achievement indicators. Achievement Indicators 7N4.5 Express a given terminating decimal as a fraction. Using the concept of place value, impress upon students the importance of correctly naming a decimal number. If 0.37 is read as thirty-seven hundredths, the conversion to 37 is easily 100 made. But, naming 0.37 as decimal three seven or point three seven has no context, or frame of reference, for the student. This type of naming should be avoided. 7N4.6 Express a given repeating decimal as a fraction. Note: Patterning in Connect p. 87 of the student text and the explanation in the ProGuide p. 6. 7N4.7 Provide an example where the decimal representation of a fraction is an approximation of its exact value. Students must recognize that fractions such as = are exact values. When using a calculator to convert the fraction to its decimal form, the display will show which is only an approximation of the value. Similarly, we often estimate values of fractions such as 1 is approximately equal to Grade 7 Mathematics Curriculum Outcomes 104

11 Suggested Assessment Strategies Resources/Notes Paper & Pencil 1. About 0.4 of a math class will be going on a field trip. Write the decimal in words, and as a fraction in simplest form. 2. Eighty percent of all life on Earth lives below the ocean s surface. Write 0.80 as a fraction in simplest form. 3. Dennis read that 0. 7 of his favourite cereal was whole wheat. What fraction of his cereal is whole wheat? 4. The following numbers appear on three calculator screens. Match the correct displays to the correct fractions. Try to do this using what you know about repeating decimals and do not use a calculator. Math Makes Sense 7 Lesson 3.1 (continued) Grade 7 Mathematics Curriculum Outcomes 105

12 Specific Outcome It is expected that students will: 7N7. Compare and order positive fractions, positive decimals (to thousandths) and whole numbers by using: benchmarks place value equivalent fractions and/or decimals. [CN, R, V] Elaborations: Suggested Learning and Teaching Strategies Number lines are particularly useful when comparing and ordering. In previous grades, students made conversions among proper and improper fractions. They are aware of the common fraction decimal equivalents ( 1 = 0.5; 3 = 0.75, 1 = 0.3 etc.) They should also work with other common fractions including sixths and eighths. Students should develop a variety of strategies to compare fractions in addition to creating equivalent denominators. They should also be able to identify fractions between any two given fractions. Various strategies are suggested below. 1. Compare in relation to particular benchmarks such as 21, 41, and 43, and their decimal equivalents. 2. Compare based on common denominators. Example: If both fractions have the same denominator, the larger numerator represents the larger fraction. E.g. 5 > 3. If denominators 8 8 differ, students will write equivalent fractions with like denominators and then compare the numerators. 3. Have students compare based on common numerators. Example: If both fractions have the same numerator, the fraction with the smallest denominator is larger. E.g. 2 > Convert all fractions to decimals and then compare tenths to tenths, hundredths to hundredths, and thousandths to thousandths. E.g = therefore 1 < 0.13 because < 5. Model fraction/decimal situations using various manipulatives like base-10 blocks, fraction pieces, pattern blocks etc. Grade 7 Mathematics Curriculum Outcomes 106

13 Suggested Assessment Strategies Resources/Notes Informal Observation Have students play FRIO (Fractions In Order) to reinforce their understanding of comparing and ordering. Each student gets five fraction (or decimal) cards out of a pack of cards, lays them out on a desk in the order they receive them, and is not allowed to change the order. Each student takes turns trading one of the cards for a new one from the pack. They place the new card in whichever location best helps in getting the cards in order. The object is to be the first to get one s cards in order. The pack should have sufficient cards to allow the game to run smoothly: for groups of 3, there should be at least 30 cards per group, for groups of 4, at least 40 cards per group.

14 Specific Outcome It is expected that students will: 7N7. Compare and order positive fractions, positive decimals (to thousandths) and whole numbers by using: benchmarks place value equivalent fractions and/or decimals. [CN, R, V] (Cont d) Achievement Indicators 7N7.1 Order the numbers of a given set that includes positive fractions, positive decimals and/or whole numbers in ascending or descending order; and verify the result, using a variety of strategies. Elaborations: Suggested Learning and Teaching Strategies Place decimal numbers and fractions on number lines. Have students compare fractions greater than one by considering them as mixed numbers. For example, which is 10 greater, 8 or 57? A possible answer: "I know 57 is greater because 8 is 1 8, 5 is 1 52, and 5 is greater than 82." Have students choose the greater fraction or decimal in a given pair. Have them accurately defend their choice. Give students 5 decimal numbers that have friendly fraction equivalents. Keep the numbers between two consecutive whole numbers. (Example: 3.5, 3.125, 3.4, 3.75, and 3.66 are between 3 and 4.) Give them a number line encompassing the same two whole numbers. Use subdivisions that are only thirds, fourths, or fifths, without labelling them. Locate each decimal on the number line and provide the fraction equivalent for each (Van de Walle and Lovin, 2006, p.115). 7N7.2 Identify a number that would be between two given numbers in an ordered sequence or on a number line. Ask students to estimate a value to make each of the following true: a)? 0.4 < < b) 3 10 < 0.? < 4 10 Grade 7 Mathematics Curriculum Outcomes 108

15 Suggested Assessment Strategies Resources/Notes Informal Observation Use a living number line. Each student is given a card with a fraction or decimal number. Students are to order themselves into a line based on the relative size of their number. Conclude by asking several students why they chose the position they did. (Alternate version: Use a skipping rope as the number line. Students attach their number to the line in an appropriate position.)

Elaborations: Suggested Learning and Teaching Strategies See student text p. 95 #9 and ProGuide p. 13. Use only fractional values in this case. Use number sets that contain numbers in a variety of formats. 7N7.6 Position a given set of positive fractions, including mixed numbers and improper fractions, on a number line; and explain strategies used to determine position.

18 Specific Outcome It is expected that students will: 7N2. Demonstrate an understanding of the addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of decimals to solve problems (for more than 1- digit divisors or 2-digit multipliers, the use of technology is expected). [ME, PS, T] Elaborations: Suggested Learning and Teaching Strategies Students should know when it is appropriate to use a paper/pencil algorithm, a mental procedure, or a calculator for the mathematical operations involving whole numbers and/or decimals. They need to understand the relationship between whole number and decimal number operations, including order of operations begun in grade 6. Emphasis should be placed on place value and estimation ideas. Ensure that instruction does not focus on students simply mastering procedural rules without a conceptual understanding. It is important that a problem solving context is used to help ensure the relevance of the operations. Addition and subtraction questions should be presented horizontally, as well as vertically, to encourage alternative computational strategies. Students should be able to use algorithms of choice when they calculate with pencil-andpaper methods. While it is important that the algorithms developed by students are respected, if they are inefficient, students should be guided toward more appropriate strategies. For example, when adding numbers such as 4.2 and 0.23, students should be encouraged to add the whole numbers, tenths, and hundredths. Estimation should be considered an integral part of any computation. Estimation should be used to develop a sense of the size of an answer for any calculations involving decimals. For example, one might round each of the decimal numbers 2.8 x 8.3 for an estimate of 24 (3 x 8). Thus, the only reasonable answer would be one that is close to 24. Other strategies will be explored as they arise within the context of the achievement indicators. Multiplication or division of two numbers will produce the same digits, regardless of the position of the decimal point. As a result, for most practical purposes, there is no reason to develop new rules for decimal multiplication and division. Rather, the computations can be performed as whole numbers with the decimal being placed by way of estimation (Van de Walle and Lovin, 2006, p. 107). Grade 7 Mathematics Curriculum Outcomes 112

Demonstrate an understanding of the addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of decimals to solve problems (for more than 1- digit divisors or 2-digit multipliers, the use of technology is expected). [ME, PS, T] (Cont d) Achievement Indicators 7N2.1 Solve a given problem involving the addition of two or more decimal numbers. 7N2.2 Solve a given problem involving the subtraction of decimal numbers. 7N2.3 Place the decimal in a sum or difference, using front-end estimation; e.g., for , think , so the sum is greater than 260. Elaborations: Suggested Learning and Teaching Strategies The focus is on using addition and subtraction of decimals in problem solving contexts. Algorithms have been covered in previous grades. Again: Estimate before Calculate. Develop number sense. One estimation strategy for addition and subtraction explored in the student text is the front-end strategy. In this simple strategy, students perform operations from left to right using only the whole number part of each value =? To estimate we think: = =? To estimate we think: = 6 Once this estimation is complete, the calculation must be performed. The estimation can be used to determine the relative magnitude of the solution. See the student text for examples. Note that rounding is not part of this strategy. Many students will likely use the rounding strategy: =? To estimate we think: = 17 Grade 7 Mathematics Curriculum Outcomes 114

22 Specific Outcome It is expected that students will: 7N2. Demonstrate an understanding of the addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of decimals to solve problems (for more than 1- digit divisors or 2-digit multipliers, the use of technology is expected). [ME, PS, T] (Cont d) Elaborations: Suggested Learning and Teaching Strategies Students have been using base 10 blocks in previous grades to discuss place value, to represent decimal numbers, and to add and to subtract decimals. They will have used base 10 blocks to multiply a decimal number by a whole number. These achievement indicators focus on using multiplication of decimals in a problem solving context. The base 10 area model will be extended to 2-digit multipliers. This extension is a new concept for the students Refer to student text p.100 and ProGuide p.18. Further, an example using the area model (Base-10 blocks) is illustrated below. Achievement Indicators 7N2.4 Solve a given problem involving the multiplication of decimal numbers with two digit multipliers (whole numbers or decimals) without the use of technology. 7N2.5 Place the decimal in a product, using frontend estimation; e.g., for $ , think $12 2, so the product is greater than $24. Focus on strategies such as rounding and front-end estimation. Rounding: =? To estimate we think 5 20 = 100 Front-end estimation: =? To estimate we think 6 x 20 is 120 and 6 x 3 is 18 plus a little more for an estimate of 140. Grade 7 Mathematics Curriculum Outcomes 116

24 Specific Outcome It is expected that students will: 7N2. Demonstrate an understanding of the addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of decimals to solve problems (for more than 1- digit divisors or 2-digit multipliers, the use of technology is expected). [ME, PS, T] (Cont d) Elaborations: Suggested Learning and Teaching Strategies Students will have used base 10 blocks to divide a decimal number by a whole number. The base 10 area model will be extended to solve problems with 1-digit divisors. The focus is on using division of decimals in a problem solving context. Achievement Indicators 7N2.6 Solve a given problem involving the division of decimal numbers for 1-digit divisors (whole numbers or decimals) without the use of technology. 7N2.7 Check the reasonableness of solutions using estimation. Again: Estimate before Calculate. Develop number sense. Focus on estimating by rounding to the nearest whole number. This will allow students to correctly place the decimal in their answer by using number sense (not merely counting decimal places). Students find this challenging when the divisor is smaller than 0.5. They cannot round to 0 as division by 0 is undefined. Another strategy is required to do this estimation. Consider the following example: =? Students will often think 4 0 =?, which is undefined. Have students consider a simple 1 m board which must be sawed into 0.2 m pieces. Five equal pieces can be made. Using this idea, we know that a 4.2 m board is about 4 times larger than the 1 m board and will make 4 times as many pieces (5 x 4 = 20 pieces).

28 Specific Outcome It is expected that students will: 7N2. Demonstrate an understanding of the addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of decimals to solve problems (for more than 1- digit divisors or 2-digit multipliers, the use of technology is expected). [ME, PS, T] (Cont d) Achievement Indicators 7N2.10 Solve a given problem that involves operations on decimals (limited to thousandths), taking into consideration the order of operations. Elaborations: Suggested Learning and Teaching Strategies Students will have already used the order of operations, excluding exponents, but limited to whole numbers. This will now be extended to calculations with decimal numbers. Remember that for more than 1-digit divisors or 2-digit multipliers, the use of technology is necessary. Note: Exponents will not be discussed at the Gr. 7 level. Remind students that rules for order of operations are necessary in order to maintain consistency of results. It is important to provide students with situations in which they can recognize the need for the order of operations. Ask students to write a number sentence for the following problem: What is the total cost for a family with two parents and three children for theatre tickets? Children s tickets cost $8.50 and adult tickets cost $ When students write a number sentence such as, 3 x $ x $14.80, ask if this solution makes sense: 3 x $8.50 = $ = $27.50 x $14.80 = $ Clearly this answer is not sensible. We cannot simply do the operations in the order they appear. Discuss with students which order is appropriate and why. The order of operations for Grade 7 is as follows: Brackets, Division/Multiplication (from left to right), Addition/Subtraction (from left to right). Specific instruction should be given on calculator use with regard to the order of operations. Students should recognize the necessity of preparing problems for calculator entry. Students should also be aware that different calculators process the order of operations in different ways. Some calculators are programmed to address the order of operations automatically, and others are not. Grade 7 Mathematics Curriculum Outcomes 122

30 Specific Outcome It is expected that students will: 7N3. Solve problems involving percents from 1% to 100%. [C, CN, PS, R, T] Elaborations: Suggested Learning and Teaching Strategies Percents are simply hundredths and, as such, are a third way of writing both fractions and decimals. Number sense for percent should be developed through the use of benchmarks: 100% is all 50% is half 25% is a quarter 10% is a tenth 1% is one hundredth Students should be able to easily shift between percent, fraction and decimal equivalents in problem solving situations. For example, when finding 25% of a number, it is often much easier to use 1 and then divide by 4 as a means of finding or estimating the percent. 4 Students should make immediate connections between other percentages and their fraction equivalents, such as 50%, 75%, 33 1 % and 20%, 30%, 40%, etc. 3 Encourage students to recognize that percents such as 51% and 12% are close to benchmarks, which could be used for estimation purposes. Students should be able to calculate 1%, 5% (half of 10%), 10%, and 50% mentally using their knowledge of benchmarks. When exact answers are required, students should be able to employ a variety of strategies in calculating percent of a number. Grade 7 Mathematics Curriculum Outcomes 124

31 Suggested Assessment Strategies Resources/Notes Interview 1. Explain why 70% is not a good estimate for 35 out of Explain how to estimate the percentage when a test score is 26 correct answers out of Change each of the following to a percent mentally and explain their thinking: 2, 5 4, 25 6, Indicate what percent of a book is left to read if the class read 60 out of 150 pages and explain their thinking. Grade 7 Mathematics Curriculum Outcomes 125

32 Specific Outcome It is expected that students will: 7N3. Solve problems involving percents from 1% to 100%. [C, CN, PS, R, T] (Cont d) Achievement Indicators 7N3.1 Express a given percent as a decimal or fraction. 7N3.2 Solve a given problem that involves finding a percent. 7N3.3 Determine the answer to a given percent problem where the answer requires rounding, and explain why an approximate answer is needed; e.g., total cost including taxes. Elaborations: Suggested Learning and Teaching Strategies Employ a variety of strategies when exact answers are required to calculate the percent of a number: o changing percent to a decimal and multiplying 12% of 80 = = 9.6 o finding 1% and then multiplying. 1% of 80 = 0.8, so = 9.6 o changing to a fraction and dividing 25% of 60 = = 60 4 = 15 (This method works best with percentages that are more common.) o using a calculator to find equivalent fractions 20% of 80 = 20 4? = =, so? = 16 It is not necessary that a student become proficient in all four methods. The important thing is that a student has a method which works well for them. The Explore activity on p. 111 of the student text, covered on p. 29 of the ProGuide and on Master 3.10, is a review of fractions and decimals, and is an effective introduction to equivalent percent values. There are times when a full decimal answer does not make sense in a real world point of view. The students will need to learn when answers must be rounded in order to make sense. Consider the following situations: A sweater costs $ Sales tax is 13%. How much tax will have to be paid? In this case, students will calculate = When making purchases, money must be rounded to the cents (hundredths) and students should conclude the tax to be paid is $2.73. A survey indicated that 42% of the students in a school wanted the cafeteria to add pizza to the menu. If there are 289 students in the school, how many of them want pizza? In this case, students will calculate = Clearly, the student should conclude 121 students want pizza. It makes no sense to speak of 0.38 of a person Grade 7 Mathematics Curriculum Outcomes 126

33 Suggested Assessment Strategies Resources/Notes Informal Observation 1. Students play the game Squeeze Play. A really useful game for comparing and ordering fractions, decimals, and percents, and converting between them. See ProGuide p.v and Master 3.8a. 2. Use a mix-up match-up game in which students each receive a card with either a fraction, a decimal, or a percent. Students must circulate around the room to find the two other students whose cards correspond to theirs. Summarize the activity with the students by asking each group of three why they belong together. See Appendix 3-B. 3. Percent War. (Refer to Appendix 3-C) Paper and Pencil 1. Have students create problems that utilize percent. They can be given flyers from local supermarkets and/or department stores and use these to create problems which involve calculating the total savings when certain items are purchased at the sale price. 2. In a recent survey, 56% of students at Triton Middle School work at part-time jobs during the school year. If there are 378 students in the school, is 125, 200, or 560 a reasonable estimate for the number of students who work part time during the school year? 3. Byron took $85 to the mall to buy gifts. He wants to purchase a book for $13, a video game for $18 and a laptop bag for $40. Sales tax is charged at 13%. Does he have enough money with him to make these two purchases? If he does have enough money for all of his purchases, how much money will he have left after he finishes shopping?
